Obesity is undoubtedly the disease that can be termed as the by-product of our technological advancements, with almost 60% of Americans being either overweight or obese.
What is obesity?
Obesity is used to describe the health condition when a person’s weight significantly exceeds the prescribed ideal weight. To put it even more simply, it is just too much of body fat and no six pack abs. This higher body fat exposes you to unwanted health risks like high blood cholesterol, hypertension, diabetes, heart disease and stroke. And, obese people generally have been observed to have lower activity levels.
The basic principle of fighting obesity is burning more calories than you eat. Make it a two-pronged approach, watch out what you eat and burn it up too. Before you embark on a routine, make sure to take advice of your doctor or dietician. The exercise you choose should be suited to your body and your lifestyle. It is not necessary to work out in a gym to get those six pack abs; you can get them in the comfort of your own home by the means of some simple home workouts. Some good home workout options include walking, jogging, squats, light weight training, and dancing. A crunch works on your abdominal muscles and is the best exercise to lose belly fat. Choose the exercise you like the most and weave it into your lifestyle. You should also modify your eating pattern and choose your food wisely. Try eating regular meals without skipping them. A healthy meal should consist of the following three components – fibrous carbohydrates, lean proteins and fats.
If you are not overweight or obese right now, make it a mission to never fall into that category. You will realize it is much easier to keep obesity at bay than to lose it. It is a good idea to start tracking your calories for a week. This will give you a very good idea of the foods you should avoid and the ones whose consumption you can increase. Do not snack on junk food, always keep healthier snacking options handy. Stay active and exercise regularly.
For any weight loss routine, you should have patience. Do not expect quick results; they might do you more harm than good.
